Bragar Eagel & Squire, P.C. is Investigating Certain Officers and Directors of Flowers Foods, Inc. (FLO) and Encourages Investors to Contact the Firm
NEW YORK, June 12, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Bragar Eagel & Squire, P.C. is investigating potential claims against certain officers and directors of Flowers Foods, Inc. Flowers produces and markets baked goods across the United States.
In August 2016, investors in Flowers Foods brought a class action complaint against the Company in federal court, alleging that between February 7, 2013 and August 10, 2016, Flowers misclassified certain employees as independent contractors, thereby exposing the Company to potential risk. In August 2016, The U.S. Department of Labor notified Flowers that it was scheduled for a review of its compliance with the Fair Labor Standards Act (“FLSA”). If Flowers is found to be in violation of the FLSA, the Company could face up to one billion dollars in fines and back pay. On March 23, 2018, a federal judge denied part of Flowers’ motion to dismiss the complaint, thereby allowing the case to proceed.
Bragar Eagel & Squire’s investigation focuses on whether Flowers’ officers and/or directors breached their fiduciary duties to Flowers’ shareholders or otherwise violated state or federal laws.
